Forex Robot Test (Expert Advisor) in the MetaTrader4 and MetaTrader5 Trading Platforms

Before we use Forex Robot (Expert Advisor) to run a forex trading business using real money, the first step we have to do is to test it first using historical data and of course using virtual money. The purpose of testing the Forex Robot (Expert Advisor) is to see the advantages and disadvantages of these tools to generate profits or losses when running a forex trading business. In this example I will try to test the MACD Forex Robot (Expert Advisor) which is already in the Examples of the Navigator window (MetaTrader default Forex Robot).

Step 1.

Please select the Forex Robot (Expert Advisor) that will be tested for its ability to make profits by right-clicking and clicking Test.

Step 3.

After waiting a while, we can see the results of the test from the Forex Robot (Expert Advisor) through the Terminal window in the Trade section to see the results as below. And the results of the trial were obtained with a Profit / Loss of 377.41 USD from a capital of 10000 USD.

To see how many forex trading positions are executed by MACD Forex Robot (Expert Advisor) during the period 2018.01.01 to 2018.08.10 with the H8 timeframe then we can see it through the History tab as shown below.

To ensure that the Forex Robot (Expert Advisor) can truly be trusted to run a forex trading business automatically, we must test it repeatedly until we are sure of the performance of these tools by changing the various parameters as we did in Step 2 above. .
